"Keeping the government out of our bedrooms"

Yeah, abortion defenders use this line to defend keeping abortion legal. But who the heck is doing abortions in bedrooms, aside from that creepy guy in Oklahoma?

Is "the sanctity of the bedroom" even remotely valid here? The bedroom is not exempt from laws. If you rape your daughter, beat your wife, or bag drugs for sale in your bedroom, the government can and will interfere. This is as it should be. Otherwise, all criminals would have to do is commit crimes in bedrooms to be immune from prosecution.

This government access to our bedrooms has not resulted in the police monitoring our sleep patterns or lovemaking. And abortion advocates are insulting all of us to suggest otherwise. They should stick to the subject. Abortion is not about two people making love--it is about two people killing a baby. And the abortion doesn't take place in a bedroom, it takes place in a public accomodation -- a doctor's office, clinic, or hospital. Bedrooms have absolutely nothing to do with it.
